West Lancashire Borough Council has awarded Forrest a £4m contract for improvements to its council homes.
The Preston-based regeneration specialist will replace the windows and doors of 1,200 homes in West Lancashire Borough, fitting each house with UPVC double-glazing.
£60m is being invested by the council in its social housing over the next five years.
The project is due to start in June, with completion expected by Christmas this year.
Forrest will create seven new apprenticeship and trainee roles, and is looking for experienced window and door fitters to carry out the contract.
Forrest chief executive Lee McCarren, hailed “the positive effect these home improvement schemes can have on communities”.
“We’ve been working with West Lancashire Borough Council for many years and their commitment to regeneration projects like this is exemplary.”
Councillor Adrian Owens, who holds the portfolio for housing (finance), regeneration and estates, said: “This scheme will benefit the tenants greatly as not only will it help make their homes more comfortable and smart it may reduce their heating bills.”
“The contracted works will also provide employment opportunities for local people, including apprenticeship and trainee vacancies.”
